Previously world class professional climber Lai Chi-Wai was paralyzed on the lower body from an accident 5 years ago. He can no more live as an athlete, but he is performing a new challenge that started as of the accident. He decided to climb the peak of Lion Rock in Hong Kong in a wheelchair. Lai Chi-Wai’s unceasing training, high concentration and incredible will of overcoming disability is moving enough, but what is even more surprising is the crowd who gathered to help him. It is not the challenge of just one person. It is made possible by the power of the good will shared throughout a group of people. (KIM Se-jin)
